, and i think scott brown and linda mcmahon and a lot of candidates out there are really going to be in trouble if the national republicans now go back on their word and come in and here try to fund todd akin. >> susan, do you agree with that? >> i agree that the democrats would really love to attach todd aakin to some of these critical swing state elections like brown in massachusetts. that's a real close race with democrat elizabeth warren, who definitely has her own problems with some of the things she's said and in connecticut as well. typically blue states where republicans have a real shot at winning. i think the problem for claire is in her own state is a state trending conservative. it's a state where people are unhappy with some of the major initiatives that claire mchas kill supported while p in congress. despite the gaffes she's running hard to hang onto her seat. this is not a done deal as i think her camp would be after he made those controversial statements last month. i think claire mccaskill, the fact she's talking about it shows she knows it's a competitive rac
a chance for scott brown to get re-elected in massachusetts? i guess that is the $64,000 question. >> and if mitt romney is running this badly in virginia george allen is going to have trouble too. >> exactly. >> he'll run a little ahead of romney but he can't survive a huge gap. >> if romney loses four or five percentage points it's going to be really rough. all right. mike, thank you so much. have a great weekend. >> happy weekend to you. >> all right. coming up we'll have claire mccaskill asking her why she's not more lady like when she is on the campaign trail. when we come back, can you believe that? when we come back the refs are back on the job. highlights from the nfl's thursday night games, next in sports with brian sullivan. you're just not going to want to miss that. keep it here on "morning joe." mika has jetted in from the south of france. she, too, will be here to talk about the nfl refs strike. ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. at unitedhealthcare ins
